LilyView is a lightweight, Mutli-Touch friendly image viewer that’s handy and doesn’t get in your way.

• Lightweight. There’s no image library to load, you just browse images in a folder.
• Chromeless. No controls are visible until they are really necessary.
• Multi-Touch friendly. You can literally touch the image when using a trackpad, but LilyView works just fine with keyboard and mouse.

And it's only the beginning…

What's New in Version 1.0.3

- Open current image in an external editor (File > Open in Editor).
- Print images (File > Print…).
- New zoom commands: Command+2 for 200%, Command+4 for 50%.
- New mode for the Automatic Zoom: Keep Zoom Level.

Great App! Thank You!

Very simple and simply beautiful.

No app is perfect but this is an awesome start.
Few suggestions for future versions

* Right click options (easier than mousing to the menu) for Find in Finder, delete, tag, delete, export, new window)
* Ability to "open in new window” so I can have a few images open at the same time.
* Simpler hotkeys (F=full screen, +,- = Zoom)
* More options in preferences instead of in drop downs (i.e. Automatic Zoom is a preference setting, should not be in View)
* Ability to see image info (size,color,etc)
* Conisder ability to choose different types of “Full Screens” … I wonder how many people find OSX zoom to full screen animation annoying. I like Lightroom… It just goes full screen bu removing OS chrome and making it fill the entire display. Its a great time saver. Please consider making it an option.


LillyView has CHANGED: Now the name should be SPAM LV… IT will TAKE OVER YOUR MACBOOK PRO RETINA

It is sad when programmers CHOOSE to destroy the formerly great LillyView app. Now it’s the SPAMMY LillyView APP. We purchased the app, it has done fine UNTIL the programmers CHOSE to INTERRUPT us with an ANNOYING and REPETITIVE requirement. You know, like… if you just let us take over the Macintosh HD, we’ll stop CLOSING your LillyView files to spam you with our requirement.

We have referred friends to this. We have a lot of friends. How did LillyView reward us for the purchases sent its way? They chose to make the app DEMAND that it take control of the Macintosh HD as a CONDITION. In other words, it wants access to the whole machine before it will stop putting an anying window in the place of any photo.

Until they apologize in writing, until they right this wrong, we cannot recommend this app. If you do choose to purchase it, remember, we tried to help you save your MacBook Pro Retina with Flash from the spammy LillyView.

Great app

Thank you so much for this great viewer!
